THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE
We go through life “doing”as much as we can and often as quickly as we can. And the world is moving faster all the time. This brings about elevated levels of tension throughout the body, mental stress, a busy mind and a disconnection between our mind and body. The Alexander Technique teaches us that we can pause and reconnect our thinking, body and mind so that we can function more effectively and with less stress.
In the process of studying the Alexander Technique we become more mindful of not only our body usage, but of how our thinking and emotions affect and reflect throughout the body. The technique shines a light on patterns of tension and habits of movement and thought that interfere with our innate ability to live life with greater ease.
